Case-Mate Hybrid Tough Case for iPad - accessory review

Case-Mate Hybrid Tough Case for iPad - accessory review

This week I am looking at the Case-Mate Hybrid Tough case for iPad. This is actually a good case considering its goal; solid protection while staying reasonably thin.

The case is unique in that it has two layers. The first layer is a silicone skin that covers the iPad and all of its buttons. It also covers the lip on top of the glass screen. The other layer is a hard plastic shell that snaps on place on the bottom of the iPad, on top of the silicone. The concept here is that it provides dust free protection while giving you a little cushion for bumps. The combination of the bottom shell and silicone protect the bottom and sides of iPad.

How is your iPhone 4 battery life under iOS 4.0.2?

How is your iPhone 4 battery life under iOS 4.0.2? Since iPhone 4 launched we've gotten tons of email and tweets from readers surprised at just how much battery life they're getting out of iPhone 4, but iOS 4.0.2 seems to have raised that bar (even if only slightly).

iPhone 4 coming to Optimus Portugal -- if you can afford it

iPhone 4 coming to Optimus Portugal -- if you can afford it

Optimus, Orange's Portuguese brand, is getting set to release iPhone 4 but the price they want for a network-locked device will make it one of the most expensive places in the world to buy one:

  • iPhone 4 16Gb Black - 679,90€
  • iPhone 4 32Gb Black - 769,90€

That's a 70€ price bump for those keeping score at home. If you're in Portugal let us know if you plan to cough up that much cash, or if you have ideas for a cheaper way to get an iPhone 4.

Facebook for iPhone updated to 3.2.1 to fix bugs, deny Places to those outside US

Facebook for iPhone updated to 3.2.1 to fix bugs, deny Places to those outside US

Yesterday saw the launch of Facebook 3.2 with Places support for iPhone, and today sees Facebook 3.2.1 with bug fixes and the explanation that Places is being rolled out slowly and is currently not available outside the US.

If this update solved any problems you were having, or clarified any confusion -- did it give you Places?! -- let us know!

[Thanks @shlov1]

Apple No Longer Offering No Contract Pricing for iPhone in the US?

Apple No Longer Offering No Contract Pricing for iPhone in the US?

According to the Apple website, it appears like US users no longer have the option to purchase an iPhone at no commitment pricing.  In the US, AT&T is the exclusive carrier.  A lot of users prefer to purchase a phone at no commitment price and unlock it for use on T-Mobile (and some people just don't like contracts).  The AT&T websites still seems to be offering the no commitment price for the iPhone. Apparently you must purchase a no commitment iPhone in store. Doesn't make any sense to us either.

Clearcam for iPhone - app review

Clearcam for iPhone - app review

Clearcam for iPhone is an app that compliments the already existing camera app. Instead of tapping camera, you take your pictures through Clearcam. I found myself using this app when I wanted clearer pictures or when I was in an area that pictures came out either blurry or dark. The concept is quite simple, it'll take several shots of the same thing and either overlays the shots or chooses the best one (depending on what setting you choose).  The app claims to up quality of the camera from 5MP images to around 11MP images.

So will you be using Facebook Places?

So will you be using Facebook Places?

Facebook has launched their own location-based check-in service called Places, and updated their iPhone app to support it, but will you be using it?

Some people maintain sharing your life, and your location, allows for "serendipitous" discovery -- people who you may never otherwise know or meet see you're nearby and take the opportunity to say hello. Others think it's pretty much a gateway to everything from embarrassment to stalking.

Google stacks Gmail for iPad

Google stacks Gmail for iPad

Google continues to rapidly reincarnate their iPad Gmail web app, this time introducing Apple Mail-style stacks into the mix. Back when the iPad optimized version of Gmail was launched, Google emphasized their new code base would allow for just this kind of fast feature development, and now hot on the heels of the new compose screen, stacks will allow for easier grouping and organizing of mail. They also gave Google's team a chance to play with CSS transitions to try and get closer in look and feel to native apps.

iOS used by 100% of multi-platform developers on Millenial network

iOS used by 100% of multi-platform developers on Millenial network

Millennial Media's July Mobile Mix report shows that while iOS is still dominant, Android is coming on like a freight train. Millenial's stats are also one of the few ways to see what's trending outside the increasingly closed worlds of Google- and Apple-assimilated and controlled ad networks. Here's the breakdown:

  • iOS was the platform utilized 100% of the time by multi-platform developers on Millenial's network. Android was second with 75% and RIM in the third position with nearly half developing for their platform.
  • iOS remained the leading OS on our Millenial's network in July with a 55% share of impressions.
  • Apple ad requests are up 24% month-over-month, 15% since January.
  • iPad ad requests grew 327% month-over-month.
  • Android OS grew another 47% month-over-month. Since January, Android has grown 690%. Android also officially became the number two OS on the Millennial network (surpassing RIM)

One more chart after the break...

Updated: Apple Store is down, start the speculation!

Updated: Apple Store is down, start the speculation!

The Apple Online Store is down and while normally Wednesday night would trigger "it's just maintenance" mode in me, there are announced products still awaiting "go live" status like the white iPhone 4! Seriously, though, that's delayed until the end of the year but there's still the 27" LED display, and all sorts of rumors about new Apple TV/iTV and 7" iPads that it's worth taking the gamble on a post.
